Recall that density has a formula of:
mass = g
volume = cm3
We’re going to calculate for the density using the following steps:
Step 1: Calculate the volume of the 1 unit cell
Step 2: Calculate the density
Step 1: Calculate the volume of the unit cell.
Given: edge length (a) = 0.474 nm
volume of unit cell = 4.74 x 10-22 cm3
Calculate the density of UO2
